Matching Game

Age Range: -
By: Joanne Golden

I make cards that hang on a board and the kids match them.

For example, 1st Pope would match with St. Peter, Jesus rises from the dead would match with Easter Sunday.

The kids love this and it is a great review tool.

My board has cup hooks that the cards hang from and I have used it for years.

If the match ups are not too obvious it could be used as a good vehicle for higher order thinking with students needing to provide an explanation of their choice. Nice to see a  game that is not just recall.
